Let me tell you a bit about my trip and why I'll never fly Canadian Airlines Again.
My flight to YYZ on a 737 left on time. But before we left I was looking at my ticket, I had seat 6D. I specifically requested a window seat when I booked the ticket and confirmed it a few days earlier. I was pissed. I asked two different gate agents if there were any window seats or if they could switch me with somebody, they said no, the flight was full. Air Canada will always try to switch your seat for you. It was a relatively smooth flight, so I asked if I could vist the flight deck, the FA said no because it was against federal regulations. I always am allowed to visit aboard Air Canada. So I sat in my aisle seat trying to look out the window. We had an excessively rough landing, the plane was all over the place before we touched down. Got my luggage and left. While driving away beside the the airport, I saw 2 AC 744, 2 AC A340's, A cathay A340, and tonnes of 767's and a320's/a319's.
On the way back, an AA 757 flew over me on my way to the airport. I arrived 1 hour before I was supposed to depart, which is plenty, in hoping to get some good pictures inside. I stood in line for 30 mins waiting to check my bag. They could've had all the check-in counters open. I have never once experienced a line that long on any other airline, foreign or domestic. Went through security, took a couple of quick pics of a BA 742, AF A340, 2 CP DC-10, and 737's. I also saw a KLM 747 and many A320's an 767's. Our flight was delayed because they were slow getting the baggage on. The pilot said the APU wasn't working so they had to hook up to the ground to start the engines. Thats odd. I was in seat 13F by the way. While we were holding short of the runway, an AC A330 took off. I got to see it because I was on the right side of the aircraft. Those sure climb steep. As soon as we got off the ground, I saw another AC A330 on the ground sitting in a remote area. They must've gotten there second one. Once airborne and the dinner service was finished I asked again if I could visit the flight deck, same response. We landed and the thrust reversers were deployed for a longer than average time. Very smooth landing in YWG by the way.
The flight attendants on both flights were somewhat rude and rubbed it in our face that we wern't in Business Class.
So those are the reasons I am never flying Canadian Again and it made me realize why I fly Air Canada.
I would post pics except I don't have a good scanner.
